I knew that the next time we visited Dallas, I had to pay an in-person visit to this amazing bakery, which has been recognized as having some of the best cupcakes in the entire country! My chance finally came this Summer...on my birthday to be exact. We arrived at Society Bakery on a hot Texas afternoon and immediately noticed two things: this bakery is very popular…and they offer a wide variety of baked goods in a large display case: whole decorated cakes, gourmet cupcakes, brownies, and cute decorated sugar cookies. They even offer baseball great Nolan Ryan's favorite cake: a beautifully decorated multi-layer Carrot Cake.

All of the items Roshi sent with us were completely fabulous…that decadent double fudge cupcake served as my birthday cake that afternoon! However, the real eye openers for me were the gluten-free brownie and the bread pudding whoopie pie. If you think gluten-free means no flavor, think again. It was dense and fudgy...no doubt one of the best brownies I’ve ever eaten! The bread pudding whoopie pie took one of our favorite desserts to a whole new level. We warmed our whoopie pie slightly so the filling became soft and melty. Feast your eyes on how gorgeous it was.
